UNIZIK Joined ASUU 2 Week Warning Strike

 

Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK), Awka, Anambra State chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has joined the nationwide two weeks warning strike of the body.

The Chairman of the institution’s chapter of ASUU, Comrade Stephen Ufoaro, while addressing members during a congress to commence the warning strike at the multipurpose hall of the institution on Tuesday, said the strike became imperative, since the Federal government failed to reach a logical conclusion on their demands.

He told his colleagues that the strike was following the decision of the Federal Government to stop salaries of lecturers who have not enrolled in the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).
